In a plug for Microsoft's Azure cloud service and a win for consumers, Microsoft and Flickr today announced dedicated apps coming to Windows Phone 7 and Windows 7 slates.
The program looks about as smooth and integrated as you can get between cloud-based photo sharing and Windows Phone, demonstrating the strengths of both technologies. Of note is the excellent looking "comment" ability that users will be able to take advantage of when discussing people's photos, plus the basics like exploring your friend's photos, Flickr Explore, etc. Other features include:
- Browse your Flickr photos in stunning high resolution display and touch navigation controls
- Share photos with friends and family via email, Twitter, Facebook and more
- Upload your latest images on the go with the in-app uploader
- Seamlessly transition from your Windows Phone 7 to Windows 7 tablet and back again, without ever losing your place
Available for download on January 31st. Cool. Combined with those dedicated Amazon.com and Bank of America apps coming, Windows Phone 7 continues to get all the big names and services out there.
